Safa skincare contacted me to ask if I would review their products, so they sent me free of charge samples of their cleansing milk and facial toner. Safa Skincare is a new and exciting alternative skincare brand that focuses on two key messages: their products come with the approval of being Organic and Halaal. And with my "Made in Britain" hat on, I was really pleased to see that these products are made in Manchester!
Over the last couple of months to help control my IBS symptoms, I have had to make sure that the food I eat are gluten and wheat free - I was really surprised when I was reading the back of the bottles that both these products are Gluten and Wheat free products, go figure?! Never did I think I should consider this within my skincare regime.
Safa Cleansing Milk has been specially formulated with organic rosehip oil, sweet almond and calendula extract. I found the milk to be of good consistency, not too runny and you can apply quite easily with your fingers and then remove using a cotton pad. The smell to me is simply herbal. I found the product to be refreshing and calming on my face, and very easy to remove before applying the Safa Organic Facial Toner.
Now I'm not normally a fan of facial toner, I think it's a waist of time, however I did give it a go and found it cooling on the skin. Safa Organic Facial Toner has been formulated using cucumber, aloe and green tea extracts - designed to lift away the remaining traces of dirt and make-up. For this product I didn't really think there was a smell at all, it just gave you a feeling of your skin being refreshed. I quite like it.
Price for both products is £5.99! Great value and affordable, which is want we want to hear at this time of year! This blog post is a preview as the products are not currently available to purchase, I'll make sure I update you when I know they are.
The packaging is green and white, and the bottles are of a simple design, reinforcing the product to be simple and natural. Vegan lovers will also be happy in the knowledge that this product is suitable for them too.
